Embroidered Doll Spa Wraps

Decided to make the granddaughters some spa wraps for their dolls.  I got the AG embroidered design from http://www.janicefergusonsews.com/blog/2012/08/25/ag-doll-spa-wrap-tutorial-free-me-designs/

Then I decided to create my own designs with embroidery and ribbon. I have these listed on my Etsy store.  https://www.etsy.com/shop/GiGisDollCreations

 Minnie Mouse theme

 Butterflies and flowers

 Zebra mask and sandals coordinates this adorable spa wrap

 Saying Girls Just Wanna Have Fun!

I found the doll bathtub at a consignment shop.  It does fit the 18 inch dolls.  Just wished I could have found two one for my house and one for the granddaughters house.

Hope you enjoyed the pictures. Thanks for stopping by.

New items for the 18 inch doll boutique

Wow, cannot believe I have not posted in such a long time.  Upon returning back to work in August, I feel as though my life has turned upside down.  Work is very busy with promotion from Associate Professor to an Assistant Professor - huge note book I have to put together to submit and then all the busy work our nursing programs re-accreditation, not to mention the two overload teaching jobs/task I have taken on top of my regular teaching load.  I was appointed the program coordinator over the med-surge course.  I feel like I have no time for my hobbies.    I am so exhausted we I get home now.  I am sure some of you are going through the same thing.  But there is hope - there is light at the end of this tunnel.  LOL.  I have been sewing some and selling a lot locally and I have been selling a lot on Etsy too. My doll backpacks have been a huge hit. 

My husband made me some school desk and I have been using those for my photo shoots.  I have been making some school doll supplies too - pencils and folders.

Here are some photos of what I have been making since my last post and selling.

Pink Paisley - another very popular design.  Ruffled pants.  Shirt is made from LJC summer in Paris. top pattern
This is a very popular ruffled outfit - I have request to make more.  The "Paris theme" outfit.
 This denim ruffled outfit, sandals, chevron backpack and school supplies I made and donated to the college I work at for the Scholarship auction.  Dennis made me the chair and desk. 
 Peace design backpack
Here is a better view of the doll size pencils I made and school folders.  I tried to purchase popular style of cardstock - chevron and dots.
